I've seen all 8 films nominated for Best Picture and "Whiplash" is worthy of consideration. Never have I seen a picture that filled me with such anxiety and hope for the obsessive hero. J.K. Simmons plays the freighting conductor. He plays the role with passion and conviction. He will literally scare you out of your seat. Miles Teller plays Andrew who is fixated on becoming the greatest drummer ever. These two forces collide in movie magic and make a film rarely seen. The question becomes, who will win? The answer, in pure movie magic, doesn't reveal itself until the very end. If you missed this one due to its limited release, I cannot recommend it enough.
Thanks for entering my world,
